Title: Bird Safety!
Post by: Sapphire on May 15, 2014, 02:19:25 pm

Interaction Between Birds and Cats and Dogs and Other Animals:

It takes just a split second for an accident to happen even with very well behaved cats and dogs who are taken by surprise. Cat saliva can be deadly to birds. Saliva toxins can kill within a matter of minutes or a few days. Scratches and bites from both cats and dogs and other animals can cause severe injury and/or death.

Be aware that dogs and cats who have been fine for years showing no interest in your birds can change as they get older. Please do not become lulled into a false sense of security. Cats and dogs can react unexpectedly for many reasons when least expected. It is your responsibility to protect your flock.

We ask that you kindly refrain from posting any images which include Cats/Dogs and Birds together!
